The Kansas City Chiefs are tied for the best record in the NFL at 11-1, and have a stranglehold on the AFC West division. After the Pittsburgh Steelers tough Week 13 loss to the lowly Washington Football Team, most consider the Chiefs to be the league's best overall team, and are currently the betting favorites to repeat as Super Bowl Champions, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

While a Super Bowl win is their ultimate goal, the Chiefs first want to clinch an AFC West title and they could do exactly that this weekend.

It's pretty simple for the Chiefs. They have to win their game against the Miami Dolphins, and also have the Las Vegas Raiders lose their game against the Indianapolis Colts. If both of those things occur, Kansas City grabs the AFC West crown.

This is the time of year where the playoff picture really starts to take shape. A win or loss form any team in contention can alter the landscape, but the Chiefs are in one of the best positions of any team in the NFL. They have already clinched a playoff berth, and very well could lock down a division title in Week 14.
